Excellent day of crow hunting today. I set up in my big been field with my 6.5/284 LG with the intention to shoot some long range crows. There were some crows in the field when I was setting up so after setting up I glassed the field with my 7x42 Swarovskis and picked one out. The one I picked was in a spot I shoot a lot he was sitting on my 720 yard bank. I put 16 MOA elevation in the 24x Leopold scope and 2.1/4 MOA for windage. Put the cross hare on the crows chest and pulled the trigger. The 140g Amax connected. I drove down and picked hem up then went back to the hill to wait for more crows to land after a bought 20 minuets one landed I had to range this one with my Wild range finder 720 meters I put the clicks into the scope 19 1/2 MOA elevation and centered the cross hare pulled the trigger and watched the crow fly off impact was 6" down wind with good elevation. I waited for another crow to land in the field another 30 minuets and one landed 900 Yards out. I put more elevation and windage into the Leupold total 24 MOA elevation and 3 1/2 MOA windage. I centered the cross hare and pulled the trigger one more crow for the day. I drove down and picked this one up and took the rest of the day off.
